Dieting can be harsh on a person’s body, not to mention their mindset. You’re usually in a state of deprivation or overload, and it seems at times like there’s no healthy balance.
That’s what author Kathryn Taylor aimed to fix with her cookbook called Love Real Food: More Than 100 Feel-Good Vegetarian Favorites to Delight the Senses and Nourish the Body (affil. link). It’s packed with over one hundred vegetarian recipes where the goal is to deliver a flood of powerful nutrients.
Kathryn is a vegetarian herself, and she shares the strategy of getting a healthy, energy-filled body with her readers. It’s based on the consumption of wholesome foods that are nutrition and delicious at the same time.
The great thing about this cookbook is that it caters to a family’s need to not only deliver nutritional meals, but to cater to any specific dietary issues as well. For example, if you need a gluten-free recipe, she has substitutions listed for you.
She’s done the same for egg and dairy-free consumers. Each meal is supposed to make you feel good in the end, delivering better overall health options than the usual diet plans.
Taylor has kept the recipes fairly simple, yet creative and unique. They’re flavorful and are just about guaranteed to become a staple in your family’s recipe box and meal rotation over time.
While most people turn up their nose at things like kale, this author tackles it head-on because of its nutritional value. She also has recipes for quinoa and whole-grain muffins, salads and yummy homemade pizzas.
You’ll find a nice variety of appetizers and entrees within the pages of Love Real Food – sweet and savory, comforting and energizing. You’ll be happy with the nutrients on your plate and appreciate the helpful tips she shares to make meals more effortless.
The best thing about this cookbook is how versatile it is for any family, even if others sitting at the table aren’t dedicated vegetarians. You’ll even find delicious desserts in the cookbook, such as Easy Carrot Cake.
You’ll have a nice accompaniment of photographs included with most of the recipes. Some cookbooks don’t include many pictures, but this one does. And she keeps the ingredients listed to the common ones you’d find almost anywhere, which is another thing many cookbooks fail to do.
You’ll find it easier to change your poor eating habits in a way that’s fast, easy, and enjoyable. And if you like to save money, she’s even shown you how to tweak a recipe for seasonal produce options!
